Fall 2018 - The Homeschool Way-Back Machine

Deadline August 1, 2018 
Estimated print edition ship date - September 13, 2018
Online publication (paid subscribers) - September 13, 2018

The idea is this - We all go back and wax nostalgic from time to time, and it's healthy to do so. It's also helpful to see how other people do their homeschool thing. We need to see that we're really not alone, and things really can look that weird or fun, silly or strict. And it's okay to change.

What did things look like for you, when you first started homeschooling? What ideas did you have, how did those first few days or months look? Did you change radically from the original vision, or did you nail it the first time out the door? How old were your kids, do you have photos you'd like to share?

Do you have an idea? Pitch it!!

Every issue has needs...

Not every article must be related to the quarterly theme...

  • Stories about successful homeschoolers. Have you or your kids gone from homeschooling to greatness of one sort or another? Tell us about it! We're dying to know how adult homeschoolers fare in life.
  • Homeschool projects with high-resolution, high quality images, and clear instructions.
  • Ideas for balancing homeschooling with working to pay the bills.
  • Tips on how to keep kids interested in learning and school work.
  • Ideas on teaching difficult, dry or neglected subjects.
  • Other homeschool related stories - this can be relating to your journey to homeschooling, or how you handle difficult situations with your children. It's a wide open topic.
  • Humorous stories - we could always use something funny to lighten the mood!

LT Kids

Super special, kid-written and edited, magazine just for homeschool kids.

Yep, you read that right. Your kids now have their very own mini-mag that you can pull out for them. In each issue of Learning Tangent for Kids, we love to see articles, art, projects and yes, even questions from homeschooling kids everywhere.

Your budding artist or writer can also submit a story or piece of art. We love to support kids in their endeavors!

We're looking for:

  • Articles - any topic your son or daughter would like to cover. They should be engaging and well-written, for their developmental stage.
  • Book reviews
  • Art/science project ideas
  • Fiction stories
  • Poems
  • Photo journalism works too!

If you're thinking about contributing, consider the following:

Because Learning Tangent is in print, there are space issues to keep in mind. We do not accept previously published work for the print magazine or website. If we are simply out of room, we may want to hold onto it for a future issue - we hope that you understand!

First - please see our contributor guidelines.

We welcome article submissions on any of these topics, and more! If you've been thinking about subscribing, now is a great time. We're partly through our fifth year of publication, and look forward to many more years of helpful, timely (and timeless!) homeschool articles without a gigantic pile of ads through which to sift. Because here - it really is about the articles.

If you would like to contribute an article, story, or art of some sort, we offer this as a guideline. There are deadlines and other information for each issue so you can make plans to get your article in before the deadline. We prefer receiving them a few days early so that if there are edits to be made, we can send them to you for review.
